matth@nospam.rtfm:~% dpkg -L ssh | grep scp

matth@nospam.rtfm:~% apt-cache show ssh | grep Filename
Filename: dists/potato/non-US/main/binary-sparc/ssh_1.2.3-9.3.deb

'ssh' is in the non-US tree, make sure you add some non-US sources to your
/etc/apt/sources.list. Personally, I use

deb http://mirror.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/linux/debian-non-US stable/non-US \
main contrib non-free

(this probably wont work right this moment, however - the server is down)
